The Easy Way
In your WordPress admin, go to ‘Plugins’ and then click on ‘Add New’.

The Hard Way

Upload the Superslider-Show folder into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Find the Superslider-Show plugin in the WordPress admin on the ‘Plugins’ page and click ‘Activate’
- Configure global settings for plugin under > settings > SuperSlider-Show
- Create post/page ,Add WordPress gallery shortcode, or slideshow shortcode.
- (optional) move SuperSlider-Show plugin sub folder plugin-data to your wp-content folder,
under > settings > SuperSlider-Show > option group, File Storage – Loading Options
select “Load css from plugin-data folder, see side note. (Recommended)”. This will
prevent plugin uploads from over writing any css changes you may have made.
- Why isn’t my slideshow working?
- How do I change the style of the slideshow?
I recommend that you move the folder plugin-data to your wp-content folder if you already have a plugin-data folder there, just move the superslider folder. Remember to change the css location option in the settings page for this plugin. Or edit directly: wp-content/plugins/superslider-show/plugin-data/superslider/ssShow/theme/theme.css (where theme is the theme you have chosen) Alternatively, you can copy those rules into your WordPress themes, style file. Then remember to change the css location option in the settings page for this plugin.
- The stylesheet doesn’t seem to be having any effect?
Check this url in your browser:
http://yourblogaddress/wp-content/plugins/superslider-show/plugin-data/superslider/ssShow/theme/theme.css (where theme is the theme you have chosen)
If you don’t see a plaintext file with css style rules, there may be something wrong with your .htaccess file (mod_rewrite). If you don’t know how to fix this, you can copy the style rules there into your themes style file.
- How do I use different graphics and symbols?
You can upload your own images to
http://yourblogaddress/wp-content/plugins/superslider-show/plugin-data/superslider/ssShow/theme/images/ (where theme is the theme you have chosen)
